You can hear this recording at the Internet Archive:


AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY
(Sid Lippman, Sylvia Dee)
As recorded by Ginny Gibson and the Country Slickers, Jubilee 6027, 1953.

1. A horse and a flea and three blind mice
Sat on a curbstone shootin' dice.
The horse he fell upon the flea.
"Oops!" said the flea; "There's a horse on me!"

CHORUS: Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy?
Silly and foolish all day long,
Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy?

2. I bought me a house that had no floors,
No walls or windows, roof or doors.
It cost me a pile but I don't care.
I like to live in the open air.

3. Oh, Jerry and George were in love with me.
Jerry was handsome as could be,
But George was mean and had two heads.
Natur'ly, he's the one I wed.

4. When I was a boy, my ma said I
Grow up to be a famous guy.
You must admit my ma was smart,
[Now] I am Napoleon Bonaparte.
